Elegant Jewels on Pink

0

Let's do an easy and elegant looking girlie manicure that can be worn on special occasions such as weddings or photo shoots! 

This combo can be altered to any colors to your liking so you can match the color theme of the outfit!


For my base, I chose a satin pink and used a pink glitter on the 4th finger.



Then I put on some pearls and crystals on the middle finger close to the cuticle that was it! Simple right?

Purple and Pink Bubble Nails

0

When I first got the Tarte's Tartelette In Bloom eyeshadow palette I knew right away that I would have to do a nailart on this! This palette is great by the way. It is smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend! Everything that I need from an eyeshadow palette!


For the base, I used a nude pink and a fuchsia colored polish.


I then decided to make the gradient watercolor look by using the cotton buds technique for the bubble nails effect.


First, I dabbed the pink polish on the nude pink nails. Before they dry, I then used a Q-tip cotton to soak up the center of the polish drop, leaving a rim of color and a faded center.


Then, I simply repeated these steps using other colors and making a gradient effect from pink to darker purple towards the nail tips. And applied top coat at the end then we are done!

Pink - Zoya
Nude - Deborah Lippmann

0

This month's bag is a fuchsia colored furry textured fabric which looks very glamorous for the holiday season!


What I got this month:



Ciaté London - Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up - 2 ml
I was most excited to see this product when I opened this month's bag! I haven't tried any of Ciate's liquid lipsticks and this one feels very comfortable on the lips. It dries down matte fast but it will transfer a little no matter how long you wear it. I don't mind a little transfer if it stays on the lips comfortably and it wears nicely! The application is very easy and quick for getting the perfect lip line. The color turns out darker on my lips than the swatch on my hand which I like too! Love this product!



NYX - Prismatic Shadow in Bedroom Eyes - 1.24 g
I got a metallic chestnut brown color which I am grateful for because I can use this more often than the other colors they have in this month's bag. The shadow is so smooth to touch in the pan and it is very pigmented. I can't wait to try it out on my eyes. I have high hopes!



Marc Anothony - Nourishing Argan Oil Conditioning Treatment - 50 ml
I love using hair mask or treatment as my conditioner and this argan oil one will be put to good use for sure! It has a nice sweet smell that I think I will enjoy! "Argan oil, keratin, and grape seed oil combat damage, breakage, and split ends."

Ren - Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask - 15 ml
This is a face mask with lots of fruit ingredients. It contains only natural ingredient which I am all about! It claims to minimize pores and diminish hyperpigmentation. I love face masks and I do at least 1 mask per day. Can't wait to try this!



Benefit - POREfessional Face Primer - 3 ml
I have multiple sample tubes of this products as well as the full size. I love this primer as it does what it claims - minimizing pores appearance! However, I am tired of receiving this from subscription boxes!

Blue and Multi-Color Dotticure

0

Here's a simple set of dotticure with blue and multi-color that I put together without really planning! But I think it turned out quite nice!


For the base, I used Julep's Isabela, a nice mid-toned blue, and OPI's Alpine Snow for the white on the 3rd and 4th finger nails.



Then I started with some polka dots using a pastel yellow and a light dusty pink on the white nails.



Then I added more dots using a teal and the same blue polish on the rest of the nails. Making it a light to dark color pattern.


I then used a toothpick to add some tiny dots in between the big dots to fill up the white spaces. After applying top coat and we are done!



Products Used:
Blue & Teal - Julep
Pink - Butter London 
Yellow - CND
White - OPI
Dotting Tool, Toothpick
